Innovative and unique design
    Resorbable Composite sheath

    Osteotwin™ Sheath is designed to increase soft tissue fixation in ACL reconstruction surgery. Using Osteotwin™ Sheath allows fixation strength and graft protection.*
    Osteotwin™ Sheath is made of 75% of PLDLLA and 25% of MBCP™ Technology.

    Osteotwin™ Resorbable Sheath Design

    osteotwin resorbable sheath
    The thread of the resorbable sheath is specific to each screw diameter so as to systematically provide the maximum amount of contact between implant and bone.

    resorbable sheath average failure loads

    • ISO 13485
    • Read the instruction for use
    • Osteotwin™ is supplied sterile and CE-marked as a Class III Medical Device according to Directive EEC/93/42
